I help science educators to incorporate culturally relevant and innovative skills into their teaching methods so that they can cultivate connections to science content for students from diverse backgrounds.

Uchenna Emenaha Miles  Ph.D.


I am Dr. Uchenna Emenaha Miles, a Houston native with West African heritage. I am an award-winning professor, educational researcher, and author. I have a range of experiences teaching at various levels – from upper elementary, secondary, to my current roles as an assistant professor at an R1 University. My expertise is in using culturally relevant pedagogy (CRP) within science/STEM instruction, to leverage students’ lived experiences making science instruction meaningful and engaging. At the heart of my work is a commitment to bridging the divide between equity and science education, striving to create a more inclusive and understanding academic environment.

I am also thrilled to share my upcoming book, “Science for All: A Guide to Developing Culturally Relevant Science Instruction for Educators Teaching in Diverse Communities.” This book is not just a publication; it's a manifestation of my dedication to transformative education where every student's story is heard and valued in the science classroom. Join me as I open new doors to inclusive and impactful science teaching.
